Akimi Oya, REALTOR
buyer's specialist, commercial agent
Akimi began in the real estate field by purchasing rental properties for herself in 2020. As an avid reader, she read books written by successful real estate investors and that quickly peaked her interest in real estate. She currently utilizes a variety of systems to manage her own properties and analyze deals. What truly drew her to real estate is not only the variety of freedom that it can afford, but also the relationships she is able to foster with people so unique and diverse from all over the world. Akimi prioritizes inclusivity, equity, and giving value to others above all, and every client can expect the same exceptional dedication and uncompromising honesty.
Akimi focuses on residential, investment and commercial real estate. She joined the Monica Hayes Team of Skogman Realty in 2021. Newly licensed and full of excitement and energy, Akimi is excited to work with buyers of all types, whether it be a first-time home buyer or someone looking to purchase an investment property.
Born in Japan, she moved with her family to Iowa at the age of 5 and has been here ever since. She graduated from the University of Iowa in 2018 with a degree in psychology and biology. Although her path in life was certainly not a straight line, she is grateful for all the twists and turns she has gone through to get to this point. Aside from real estate, you might find her in an early morning sweaty workout at local gym Versa Fitness or walking her dog, Robo. She’s a foodie at heart and would love to hear your restaurant recommendations!
